From NOLA too, and I'm jealous! I would love the chance to go watch the bronco vs saints game in Denver. I went the the saints vs broncos game down here a couple of years back (which was awesome because that was the one Anderson broke the rookie rushing record). I live in ATL right now, but it's good to know I wasn't the only bronco fan in NOLA!

Judging by his user name, I'm not so sure he's a Broncos fan...

Check out the tailgating thread, they have a lot of info even for rival fans.

Everything depends on how much you want to spend on your trip. I would stay somewhere near the 16th street mall if I only had a couple days in town. If you have more I would rent a car and drive to red rocks or garden of the gods or up into the mountains.

My favorite place to stay is the Adams Mark with a view of either the park or mountains but that is pricey.

Enjoy the ass whipping. BTW what is the bounty for knocking Manning out of the game?

Garden of the gods is amazing. The Air Force Academy is really nice to visit also( just outside Colorado Springs, not far from Denver) my wifes grandpa made the chapel replica that's in the visitor area, he was a really skilled carpenter.

As far as Denver goes, I have never explored it, always stayed with wifes family in the Springs and drove to Denver for games or Greely for training camp when it was held there.

Trust me as a former Denver resident... You want to stay at any hotel on East Colfax. There are also a ton of night clubs/social establisments there as well. Can not go wrong in that area.

Plenty of girls there as well if you are planning on breaking out your southern "charm"

CBF1 aka cruise director has spoken.

Actually next time you drop into DIA take Pena blvd to airport RD. From there hop on Colfax and you will find new development along Colfax. You'll see store fronts being updated. Starbucks, new banks, then you will get I-225. From there you will see the largest single hospital development in the country that has added 25,000 good jobs to date and they aren't even close to being done.

My old man use to run a motel on "east colfax" when there were girls. If you see a woman on east colfax now it's likely she is wearing a nursing outfit, making 50k-100k a year, and coming back from a new restaurant in her BMW.

All the old Colfax jokes now have to be directed on the Denver portion of colfax because East Colfax isn't what it once was.

There are a handful of the old motels you remember CBF1 but more than half of them are gone and the rest have a short shelf life.

Saints Fan......Put your boys in Lot M. First come first serve but you'll get in. Quick walk to the stadium and good general vibe in there with less yellow coats to bug your group.

If you're 25 you want to stay in the "LoDo" area. It's where all the clubs, etc, are located. It is also close to the stadium.

Stay anywhere downtown, in what is called the LoDo area. There is a hotel right by the stadium, but it is, shall we say getting on in age.

Make sure to check in here and look for tailgate announcements. Rival fans are always welcome to most tailgates if they are cool.

The stadium isn't far from LoDo, which is the main bar area in our town. I have transitioned to parenting so I never go down there anymore but it was a blast when I was 25.

I will do some ticket searching for you see what I can find.

I appreciate the help fellas, if y'all ever make it down to an LSU or Saints game I would love to show the same generosity. I'm excited that a lot of tailgating goes on, our LSU tailgates are top of the line but with the Dome being downtown it's just easier to pre game at a bar unless you wanna pay $40 to park in the few lots around the Dome

My roommate (dumbass Saints fan ) and I are also heading to Denver for this game. We're staying at the Ramada Hotel on Zuni St. It's certainly no Hilton but I've stayed there before. It's dirt cheap and close to the Stadium and downtown. If you're partying, you probably don't care what your room looks like as if you're like me (I'm 26) you're barely ever there. As far as tickets try (I emphasize try) when they go on sale next week. If not I've used StubHub before. DO NOT purchase them til regular tickets go on sale as right now the prices are downright retarded.

Cheers

If you happen to find additional tix, let me know. Haven't gotten my tix yet for this game.

You should check out the local library.

Yep, stay downtown.

You're obviously used to a better party scene, but you'll still have a good time.

July 23, single game tickets go on sale. Which explains why I can't list my tickets in exchange. I thought tickets already went on sale!

That's all we are looking for, I guess you could say we like to drink a little too much I've been to every football venue in the SEC plus a few other Saints away games and we always make friends with some locals and have a great time

so there is a waiting list for season tickets but they still sell individual game tickets? I would imagine it's just a few tickets that are left over from the family, etc of the away team?

They reserve a certain amount for single game tickets and part of getting the stadium built they were required to reserve a certain amount for half price sales which they do the day single game tickets go on sale. Those half priced tickets are reserved for residents, I think.

I thought they released them locally a limited amount of time before the game but anyone can buy them. duh bears do that here they are hard to get.

When I plan a trip in from out of state the 1st thing I make sure I have is the tix then I make the reservations. Unless I were going to San Diego to watch a Bronco away game, in that case the Chargers ticket sale office calls me!

Oh ok, I guess we don't have the same deal because we sell out season tickets. I can't wait for this trip/game, it is going to be one of the best games of the year IMO. Anything we need to know regarding tailgating laws with walking with alcohol? In New Orleans we can walk down the street with a beer 7 days a week so we make sure to look up local laws before we leave town
